Korn’s recent makeover as the most agressive group in all of “DROP THE BASS” brostep sort of makes sense in a way. Skrillex-style dubstep is predicated on that moment when it feels like your lower colon is going to come shooting through your digestive track and out your mouth*, and Korn’s ’90s albums were built the same way.

This album is well-known enough that people can scream along to it in the crowd. I wish I was able to say, “Oh the humanity, what is wrong with you people!” but I guess when the alternative is listening to non dance-music heavy Korn, this isn’t so bad? Maybe? I really don’t know. I just want to be out from in front of this. So I’m out. Watch it below:
